Get ready to cringe! Just one day after their tense final debate, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were forced to come face-to-face at a charity event in New York — and sit just feet away from each other! See all of their awkward photos, right here.
Wow. Imagine having to sit next to your worst enemy for hours, just one day after slamming each other publicly. That’s what Hillary Clinton, 68, and Donald Trump, 70, had to do on Oct 20 when they attended the Al Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York. The duo sat just one chair away from each other during the white tie affair, separated only by Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan. Click through all the pics in the gallery above.
In several of the photos, Hillary and Donald are quite intentionally averting their eyes from one another, looking off in opposite directions with either grimaces or huge cheesy smiles that seemed a little forced. At one point Hillary walks past Melania Trump (who has been bashing her intensely lately) and literally frowns. We couldn’t help but wonder how a body language expert would judge their encounter, so we asked Dr. Lillian Glass.
“Trump is looking very miserable, overall neither one is happy with one another,” Lillian revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “They’re not looking at one another and they do not like one another. Trump is giving her dirty looks and looking down at her.
So what’s up with Hil’s plastered on smile? “Hillary seems to be really overreacting and he seems to be very uncomfortable in this environment,” she explained. “They’ve got the priest there to buffer them, it’s supposed to be happy occasion but it’s obvious they are not happy to be there together.”
Lillian noticed one of the most unpleasant moments of the night. “In one picture he cops a look at her and it’s one of disgust,” she says. “It’s a very revealing photo that proves he doesn’t like her even when nobody is looking. He’s looking at her in a private moment and it’s a private moment of disgust. They won’t even look in the same direction. Hillary is looking to the left and Trump is looking ahead he doesn’t even want to turn his head to look at her, she repulses him so much.”
Don’t worry though, Lillian says the bitterness is mutual. “Hillary clearly feels the same way (about Trump), they’re literally giving each other the cold shoulder with the priest in the middle,” she explained. “She is hiding her disdain and is the ultimate politician, showing she can ignore and look the other way and he is a business man keeping his eye on the enemy.” Yowza!
